🔮Technologically Clairvoyant Edition 3

WiFi Tracking, Robot bees, Autonomous vehicles, jetpacks & more

Hello 👋

Brandon here.

🌊 Welcome to the third edition of 🔮Technologically Clairvoyant🔮

No announcements this week, so let’s get right into it 🎪

Near Future

🚅 Netherlands’s Rail System Uses WiFi Tracking

Following on from last week, the Netherlands publicly admits to using WiFi tracking. However, unlike TFL, they detail more on why and how. Firstly, lets cover the security concerns. MAC addresses are uniquely identifiable addresses which can identify a network card. Typically you have one network card per device, so they can be used to identify a device. When they track your device, the MAC address is hashed, then sent to a server, where it is salted. The salt changes everyday, and is not stored on a computer. They then cut some of the hash out, so there is no way that the hashed MAC address can be traced to an individual .The hashing algorithm they use is Bcrypt. I have to admit, hashing locally in the train station is genius.

Normally, client-side hashing sucks. When you hash client-side, the hashed passwords becomes the actual password. That means you will be storing the plain text in the database (the hashed password is the plain text).

But, MAC addresses are different. We know they are entirely unique, and can be used to identify a single device. By hashing them client-side, the hashes will become the IDs of the MAC address. Meaning that on the server, there is no way to get a MAC address. You can only get hashes, which do not give information on what device you own.

There is absolutely no way to personally identify you, all while keeping the benefits of having individual devices tracked through stations. It’s clear from this technique that they have put a lot of thought into the privacy of individuals, while still maintaining the benefits.

They also admitted to using Bluetooth tracking, which was discontinued last year. If you’re interested in this, do check out the link. They detail exactly why they track people, what for, how the data is being stored and for how long. This is a typical GDPR setup. All companies have to give you this information if you ask for it, they’ve published it online. I’ll let you know if I see any GDPR inquiries of what the WiFi tracking on the tube system is for / how they do it.§

🧚‍♀️ Breast Cancer AI Outperforms Traditional Methods

The AI has an accuracy of 31%, compared to traditional methods at 18%. Something else interesting from this article is:

“Black women are 42% more likely to die from breast cancer”

The researchers at MIT believe this is due to lack of healthcare access. They hope their AI can be implemented around the world to provide cheap screenings for women of all kind.

🍼 One Million Plastic Bottles Are Made per Second. Only 9% Are Recycled

Plastic bottles take 400 years to naturally decompose. If our plastic bottle creation rate carries on, every 400 years (when one bottle decomposes) 12610000000000000 plastic bottles will be created. It’s estimated that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050.

5g Frequency Set To Disrupt Weather Forecasts

This isn’t directly caused by 5G. The frequencies that are planning to be used by 5G disrupt satellites from detecting water vapor, disrupting a part of weather forecasting (but not all weather forecasting). The FCC and NOAA are working together to make sure that companies do not use the frequencies which can effect weather forecasting. Speaking of 5G, let’s address some other 5G issues.

Can 5g kill you?

No. It can’t kill you. Can it harm you? Very, very unlikely. I’m going to list some of the things that people use as ‘proof that 5G can harm us’ and objectively look at each one.

Senate Bill 637

This is a law from the United States of America. A lot of news articles / conspiracy theorists claim it’s senators fighting to protect us from 5G, and that this law wasn’t put into place.

Turns out, this law is in place. It was ratified. But the bill isn’t about the ‘dangers’ of cellphone towers. Here, you can read it:

The bill would cap the amount the state and local governments could charge for zoning, permits and other fees imposed on these “5G” networks.

This law places a limit on how much the state and local governments can charge for permits, zoning and other fees of putting 5HG into place. It’s nothing related to the ‘dangers’ of 5G. You can read it here.

5g Test Killed Hundreds Of Birds

False. The original source of this is Erin Elizabeth. It was posted to her blog, Health Nut News. This same blog claims that vaccines cause autism and other strange things. What’s funny is that her website is dedicated to selling products to protect you from all these ‘harmful’ things.

Can 5G kill humans?

Absolutely not. This is absurd. Firstly, there’s a 20 - 30 year test in Europe on 30,000 people which monitors how harmful phones are to humans. This study is still ongoing, but so far they’ve found nothing. Secondly, infrastructure like this is tested intensively.

4G was announced in the late 90s / early 2000s. It was officially announced in 2002. I personally got 4g 4 or 5 years ago. That’s an awfully long time for them to test things, to make things right. A lot of networking has been announced for 20+ years and still hasn’t come into effect.

Even if 5G was dangerous, it would be fixed far, far before you can even buy the first phone that supports 5G. Now, I do recommend you read for your own. Do not trust everything you read online, including this newsletter. Find the original source, always. And test that source subjectively like I have done so here.

👩‍🍳 Deepfake Youtube Channel

This YouTube channel is dedicated to creating & distributing Deepfake videos. While there’s no technological breakthroughs, I have to admit that some of the videos are fun 😂

🍆 Software Developer Makes Facial Recognition Software To Find Social Media Links Of People In Porn

They claim they’ve found the identities of 100,000 porn stars so far. Just to be clear, there is no proof he has done this. However, it’s caused quite a stir on Twitter and other social media sites. As a computer scientist, it is definitely possible this is real. As we saw 2 weeks ago, Facial Recognition is being used in airports for passports. It’s very possible to find someone’s social media account using multiple images of them (via video).

The user posted this on Chinese site Weibo. It is difficult for me to find the original source, as it doesn’t index for me on English Google. However, there are screenshots of the original source here.

🔋 Chinese Government Claims A New Technological Breakthrough Pushes Lithium Production Prices Down 817%

The report claims that it’s made the cost of extracting lithium (usually £20,000 per ton) down to £2180, a 817% decrease. This can bring electric vehicle costs down. But, with the Trade war Between China And America it looks like American EV manufactures will have to wait to experience this decrease in production costs.

🤖🚗 Studies Show Autonomous Vehicles Are No Safer Than Manual Vehicles

This article has no hard numbers to prove that autonomous vehicles are no safer, however, that is where the problem lies. Tesla is refusing to release data on its crashes. The numbers that Tesla does release show that autonomous vehicles are getting safer, but perhaps right now they are not as safe as the industry hopes them to be. While I’m pro autonomous vehicles, it’s clear that these vehicles - in their current state are not cut out to work in most places.

Distant future

💉 Do-it-yourself Insulin: Biohackers Aim To Counteract Skyrocketing Prices

We had hackers in the 70s / 80s who could do all kinds of cool things. Free long distance phone calls, free television cable and more. I believe that we’re on the verge of a biohacking revolution. Millions of people with diabetes don’t have access to insulin globally. And if they do, it might cost money. Biohackers aim to create a protocol for “do-it-yourself insulin”.

🗣 Natural Language Processing To Cure Cancer

This is an extremely fascinating presentation. The short term clinical goal of this group is to decrease the number of unnecessary surgeries. In their words:

“80% of high risk biopsies are benign”

We know that AI can predict cancer better than humans, but it simply does not have the data set. This team is using NLP to process text documents, reports generated by machines (such as heart rate monitors) and every single medical record. Using this massive data set, they’re going to train a neural network to predict cancer.

Looking into my crystal ball 🔮 I can imagine this being used for so much more. Imagine wearing a fitness tracking device that tracks every single thing about you. You can track food and water intake too. All of this will be combined with doctors reports and past medical data. In the background, a machine will use NLP to process all of these documents.

Using neural networks, the machine will run tests for every single disease / illness under the sun. Some diseases exist for years before their first symptoms show. Imagine how many lives will be saved if in the background this unified machine checks on you 24/7.

Let’s go one step further. I don’t want some machine to know all my private health stuff? I want it all to be encrypted. I want it so if they’re hacked, no one can read it. How do you train a neural network on things that are encrypted?

You can use fully homporphic encryption. You can perform calculations on data without knowing what the data is. E(a) * E(b) = E(a * b) - where E(x) is the encryption function being applied to x. Imagine in the future being able to train a neural network without knowing any single persons data. Of course, this is looking into my crystal ball now. As far as I know, there is no fully homorphic encryption scheme. And no one has published anything on using it in this way. But it’d be a cool thing to have in 100 years.

👻 Tiny 3d Printer Prints Gengar

Andrew Birch (a one-man hacker show) created an incredibly small 3D printer and demoed it by printing Gengar. The 3D printer looks to be about the size of a foot. I can imagine a day where everyone walks around with 3D printers and prints what they need. Need a screwdriver? No worries, I’ll print one now.

🐌 Crispr Has Been Used To Create The Worlds First Left Snail

Most snails are born right. That is, their shell coils to the right. In fact, almost all snails are. Left snails are often lonely.

The technology is important for understanding why 1 in 10,000 people are born with situs inverus, a condition where their internal organs are flipped like a lefty snail’s shell.

🚀 NASA Partners With Virgin To Create A 3d Printed Combustion Chamber For Rockets

Traditionally it takes many months to manufacture, test, and deliver a conventional combustion chimer. This new technology is expected to reduce that time considerably.

🖨 New Low Cost Bio-printer

Bio-printing is an additive procedure where biomatierals such as cells and growth factors are combined to create tissue-like structures that imitate natural tissues. Typically low-end bioprinters cost £10,000. While higher end ones cost £170,000. This printer can be built with £375.

🚀 Jetpacks Are Real

Jetpacks Are Real. Just like in the movies. But, there are too many problems that outweigh the advantages.

For one, humans aren’t meant to fly. We’re not aerodynamic at all, requiring a relatively large amount of force to lift into the air. Two, the fuel used for jetpacks is the same fuel used for rockets. Combining hydrogen with an oxidizing agent. Rocket fuel isn’t very good for the environment, as we can all imagine.

Thirdly, they don’t fly very long. The upper limits seem to be around 90 seconds. The fastest speed set in a jetpack is 32.02 MPH.

🐝 Robot Bees Can Pollinate Flowers, Swim Underwater And Stick To Surfaces

Robot bees exist. They can pollinate flowers, swim underwater (for some reason) and stick to surfaces just like regular bees. Scientists have seen the mass extinction of bees and decided to just build robotic bees.

On the one hand, robot bees are cool. They can pollinate 24/7. On the other hand…. I don’t understand why scientists have decided to go straight to replacing bees instead of trying to save them. In the distant future, would it be ridiculous to think that all of our animals on earth are replaced by robots?

We can replace dogs, bees, fish, cats and all sorts. In the distant future, I can imagine the rally cry’s for replacing animals. “Bees go to sleep, our robots don’t. They do more than bees do”.

“Lions are vital in the circle of life, but they kill so many humans. Think of our robot lions which have learned not to harm humans”

👓 Varjo Announces Xr-1 Headset

Volvo reportedly use this headset to test / help build cars. What’s impressing me is the idea of using AR within cars. AI can drive better than humans, but sometimes humans can see things better than AI can. Using AR, I can imagine the windshield of the car being augmented to provide details about the environment to enable drivers to drive with the AI - as opposed to either the AI or human driving.

🛴 UC Berkeley Unveil Salto, A Hoppy Robot

The tiny robot hops around, as opposed to walking or driving. What’s amazing to me is that out of all the robots I’ve seen, this robot shows the most emotion - despite only being able to hop.

Until next time,

🔮Technologically Clairvoyant Edition 2

Rockets, surveillance, cancer, flying cars

Hello 👋

Brandon here.

🌊 Welcome to the second edition of 🔮Technologically Clairvoyant🔮

We now have a website! You can view past editions of this newsletter here: https://Technologicallyclairvoyant.com (Github)

Without further ado, let’s get into it 🎪

Near Future

🚀 NASA Has Autonomous Robots On The ISS

NASA’s first robot, Bumble, can de-dock itself and float to an astronaut to provide a research terminal. In the future, it’d be interesting to see most of the International Space Station automated by robots.

🚁 Mavlav Showed Off Their Tiny Racing Drone

MAVLab’s drone is incredibly tiny, no larger than the average human hand. The drone can fly completely autonomously, packing computer vision into it’s 72 gram form factor. Looking into the distant future I can see CCTV cameras being replaced with micro-drones like this. These CCTV replacements could use AI to follow someone if they’re looking ‘dodgy’. Currently AI can be used to tell if someone is lost, anxious, or being trafficked.

🌞 Inspecting Solar Panels With Thermal Drones

FLIR recently showed off a drone which inspects solar panels. The company states that these drones can detect errors in a fraction of a second, and with higher accuracy than a human inspector and exponentially faster than humans.

🚇 London’s Tube Network To Switch On WiFi Tracking By Default

Transport for London touts that the benefits of WiFi tracking outweigh the downsides. TFL can see where congestion is in the tube and redirect traffic, making the tube more efficient. It’s always been possible to track people using WiFi. When your phone is in range of WiFi, it pings the router. The router can use the signal strength to approximate how far you are away from the router. It’s possible to work out how many people are in a tube station.

It’s also possible to pinpoint the exact location of everyone using just WiFi. If you have 3 routers set up in a perfect triangle in a tube station, each router will know how far away someone is from that router. Combining this data, you can triangulate the exact location of someone.

This reminds me of IMSI Catchers, but without the easedropping abillities. IMSI Catchers are devices that can ease drop on mobile communications by pretending to be radio towers. It may be possible in the near future to alleviate traffic completely using this technology. I can see this technology being used in the autonomous driving revolution. Seeing the flow of traffic over time let’s you create better, faster routes.

🤖 Amazon Rolls Out Machines That Pack Orders And Replace Jobs

Amazon’s robots can crank out 600 - 700 packages each hour, per robot. Amazon warehouse employees don’t like working in the warehouse, so robots can be seen as a good thing. But like with all automation, Amazon employs 615,000 People. The majority of them will lose jobs when Amazon replaces them with robots.

🌊 Researchers Develop Viable, Environmentally-Friendly Alternative To Styrofoam

Styrofoam is one of the most damaging plastics. 1439 kg or 153048 cups of Styrofoam have been produced since you started reading this newsletter. Crazy, right? With so much produced, it is destroying the oceans. I’ve put this into the near future because the planet is fucking dying. This change has to happen soon for the environment to be saved.

🏎 Driverless Cars Working Together Can Speed Up Traffic By 35 Percent

In the future when all cars are autonomous traffic problems will become non-existent. The cars will know where traffic is and create a route that doesn’t create more traffic. In Computer Science, this problem is called the Max Flow Problem and it’s solved. If you have 10,000 cars heading to a motorway traffic jam, it is possible to find a route whereby all 10,000 cars can travel the same direction but experience no traffic. For the record, I’m pro replacing drivers with cars. Uber and Lyft drivers force surge pricing to earn more money. In the future when all taxis are autonomous the consumer wouldn’t have to worry about artificial surge pricing.

👩‍⚕️Google’s Lung Cancer Detection AI Outperforms Humans

We’ve seen this pattern over and over. AI outperforming humans in detecting cancer. In the near future, diagnosis will be replaced by machines. What’s important to know is that I don’t believe in artificial general intelligence being smarter than humans. AI infused with humans is better than AI or humans on its own. Ray Dalio’s company, Bridgewater Assiocates uses AI + Humans to invest. In the 2008 - 2009 financial crisis, their portfolio made 15.6%. Back testing to the great depression, they only lost 2%. Gary Kasparov, a chess grand master, says that the best chess players are humans infused with Ai. It’s not long until human + AI doctors revolutionize the world.

📬Self Driving Mail Delivery Vans

USPS are trialing self driving delivery vans. This is a great idea. There are some places in the USA where mail is delivered by mules (because cars cannot travel there). Drones may also be incredibly useful in this instance. This is going to sound strange, but I believe hand delivered mail will become really big in the next 10 - 15 years. In the early 90s, static HTML pages were all the rage. Then they were replaced. But now no one has a static page, so we’ve gone back to them to stand out.

The same will happen to mail. No one gets mail anymore. And when we do, we feel happier. A little joyus. Everything will move to email, but the people that start using mail when everyone else is using email will be a favourite to the nation.

🚁NASA Tests Drone Traffic System In Cities

Following on last weeks prediction of emergency service drones and traffic systems, NASA has started a 4 year plan to control the traffic of drones in a city. Their system unifies all drones, a communications hub for drones. This flight system will let each drone know where everything is and how to plan the fastest routes. In the not so distant future, autonomous vehicles will also have a unified system to communicate through.

Distant Future

🛰Spacex Is Building A Network Of Satellites Around The Earth To Provide WiFi To Everyone

The first 60 test Satellites have been launched. Elon Musk says that the system will be fully operational by 2025. Having read Musk’s Biography, I know that he has a habit of estimating timelines badly. This is in the distant future because it’ll probably happen in 2035.

🇨🇳 Chinese Social Credit System Used To Warn People Before Dealing With Them

The government algorithm has recently received an update. When you have low social credit, you become a 'laolai'. The ringtone on your phone changes to one that shames you every time you get a public call. I’ve linked to an English source here. In an effort to be unbiased, I’ve found Chinese government sources here (as well as Chinese newspapers, but translated into English) [1] [2] [3] that discuss China’s social credit system. China wants the entire system rolled out nationwide by 2020.

📸Static Single Image Of Someone To Talking Moving Video

Researches have created an AI that takes a single image of someone and turns it into a moving video of the person talking. This technology was used to create a speaking Mona Lisa. With deep fakes becoming ever more prevalent, it is surprising to learn that they don’t need that much content to learn from and can in fact just use a single image.

🌳 University Of Maryland Researches Create High Tech Wood That Reflects The Sun’s Rays

By removing the Lignin—a component of the cell walls in trees—from natural wood using hydrogen peroxide researches have found that the wood reflects sunlight. Meaning that the wooden house would be a lot cooler than a normal wooden house.

The wood is also 8.7 times stronger than normal wood, as it’s incredibly dense.

🚀Airbus Shares A Glimpse At It’s Flying Taxi

Flying cars are becoming ever more popular. It'll be interesting to see which company is leading the flying card industry in 10 - 15 years.

🚗🤖Ford Autonomous Robots + Autonomous Vehicles

Ford have shown off a new delivery concept. Vans with packages are autonomously driven to the persons house, and then an autonomous robot unpacks itself and delivers the package. I don’t believe this to Be

🍎Echord++ Small Agriculture Robots That Work Together, Rather Than A Large Machine

Echord++ uploaded a video of their MARS agricultural robot in action the other day too. The MARS program aims to redefine how we use robots in farming, by using a swarm of small bots that work together instead of larger machines. I’ll have more of this in my farming special, coming soon.

🧠 DARPA are looking into brain-to-computer interfaces

As we've discussed earlier, humans infused with AI seem the way to go. DARPA are looking at interfacing your brain with AI. Similar to what Elon Musk's Neuralink are doing

🔮 Technologically Clairvoyant - Issue #1

Drones, Meat, Facial Recongition, VR and much more.

Hello 👋

Brandon here.

Welcome to edition 1 of my weekly newsletter 🔮 Technologically Clairvoyant. Every week, we'll explore what the future can hold for us. This is a beta-test before I send it out to my whole list. Let me know (via email, or however else you can contact me) about:

  • What do you think of the name?

  • Is this too technical?

  • Fewer links, more talking?

PS: I wrote some code to automate part of this newsletter. Check out the GitHub repo here.

The Near Future

🌉San Francisco is first US city to ban facial recognition

I believe this ban to be caused by Airports. In the last few weeks, airports have been rapidly adopting facial recognition to replace passports. You do not have to opt into this. By default, you are opted in and you cannot opt out. The government has a photo of your face and they'll use it instead of your passport / boarding pass. I expct the usage of this to increase over time.

The scariest part, to me, is the idea of deep fakes. Can you fake facial recognition using a deep fake?

Meanwhile, police forces across the world are running rampant on using facial recognition.

👮‍♀️Police Are Feeding Celebrity Photos into Facial Recognition Software to Solve Crimes

🤳How safe do you think it is to "pay by face" on mobile phones? We measured an accuracy rate of less than 70%

WeChat and Alipay, which let's you pay using a face, has a face accuracy of less than 70%. That means that there is a frightening possibility someone could fake your face. Either through pictures or a molding. With this technology becoming ever most present in airports, it’s scary to think at how easy it can be to break.

👩‍🌾Robots take over farms faster than expected through autonomous equipment start-up

The first fully autonomous farming equipment is arriving. Lyft executive said then when the autonomous driving industry really kicks into gear, drivers will have to become mechanics.

🚕Lyft executive suggests drivers become mechanics after they're replaced by self-driving robo-taxis

It's no stretch of the imagination to imagine farmers going from farmers to becoming mechanics. Farmers already have a life long history of becoming hardware hackers. I'll explore farmers and agriculture in a later special.

The BBC is working on a 'public service algorithm'. An algorithm designed to improve the lives of the public.

🎧BBC building 'public service algorithm'

The BBC claims that current mediums are too much of an echo chamber. You watch Joe Rogan and you'll only hear right wing news. You listen to a left wing podcast and you'll only hear about the left wing. The BBC is designing an algorithm to broaden the horizons of the listeners. In the words of the BBC:

"An algorithm designed to promote skepticism rather than reinforce prejudice"

The future of media is moving towards algorithms. In the near future, adverts will be customised to each person listening / watching. At the moment, all the adverts you see online are customised to you - personally.

📺Plan for personalised adverts to be screened on home

Eventually, the adverts on your TV or radio will be customised to you.

🚁DHL documents delivered by drone

Logistics company DHL has teamed up with drone maker Ehang, to offer the first fully automated express delivery system in China. The system can travel about 8km from its' base station, and can carry up to 5kg per flight.

This is all in an effort to bring the delivery time down. The less time between you buying the package and it being delivered, the higher the chance is of you not returning it. This is because when you get a product, you get a feeling of joy and happiness. You want to explore the product - you don't want to return it.

Amazon has warehouses hyper-local to serve communities. They have much larger warehouses over the country. The most popular products are shipped to a much more local warehouse, to reduce delivery time to one hour or two hour delivery.

🏥University of Maryland Unmanned Aircraft Used to Complete Kidney Transplant

The University of Maryland demonstrated another use for delivery drones a few weeks back too, by successfully transporting a kidney used in an organ transplant. This kind of application makes sense, especially in built up areas, where time is crucial.

With Amazon fighting for drone space and drones being used for medical operations, something has to change. Drones may be designated 'important'. Maybe with flashing lights and sirens - like emergency services. These drones will have priority over other drones in the airspace. None of this has been confirmed yet, it is pure speculation. But speculation based on education and knowledge.

🔫NYPD using VR to train for active shootings and real-life scenarios

The New York Police Department are using VR to train for active shootings and real life scenarios. As time goes on, the VR environments will improve. NASA already use VR to train their astronauts:

🛰How NASA uses virtual reality to train astronauts

🌖We Are Going

NASA made an announcement that they are going to the moon by 2024. And they're going to stay on the moon.

🥑Wing to launch early access air delivery program in Finland in June

Wing, a Google company, announced that they will begin delivering food to the citizens of Helsinki.

In the not so distant future, with drones becoming ever more popular for deliveries UberEats and Deliveroo would be put out of business. We'll use drones to deliver food. Not only are they faster (they can fly over buildings / not obey traffic laws) but it would be considerably cheaper too (due to economies of scale.

The Distant Future

💻LightBee: Holographic Drone Projects Princess Leia in Mid-Air

Human Media Lab unveiled the LightBee, which is basically a hovering hologram-like system, used for telepresence applications. The person on the other end of the call uses a special camera array, which creates a realistic parallax effect, so those viewing at different angles, will see a slightly different image.

🔨An Omnidirectional Aerial Manipulation Platform for Contact-Based Inspection

And as well as all that, the Autonomous Systems Lab have been developing drones capable of aerial tool manipulation, meaning it can take installed tools, and press up against various surfaces, for inspection or use. For example, using a drill or a paintbrush. I could see potential uses for this kind of thing in industrial, and bridge monitoring.

🐙Beyond the Metal: NASA Investigating Soft Robots for Space Exploration

NASA are exploring using soft robots for space. Think Octopus tentacles. Instead of arms / legs, tentacles could be used instead. They have more maneuverability, possibly better grip and can survive longer.

🛸The Lilium Jet five seater all-electric air taxi

In other news, Lilium successfully completed a test flight of their 5-seat air taxi. The jet-powered VTOL will continue testing. It's a flying 5 seater taxi.

This reminds me of Google's Kitty Hawks' Flyer. A one person flying car.

🤖This AI-generated Joe Rogan fake has to be heard to be believed

Someone has created an AI generated Joe Rogan fake clip. The audio is entirely fake - but sounds scarily realistic. Deep fakes are getting scarily real. One Star Wars fan used Deep fake to generate a fictional Star Wars scene. Obi Wan vs Darth Vader.

Star Wars SC 38 Reimagined

In the not-too-distant future it wouldn't be hard to see political smear campaigns being carried out by using a deep faked video + audio.

A perfect deep fake using both video & audio has yet to be produced (at least, to the public). While faking letters has been around for years, it's been possible to prove whether someone has sent a letter or not using Public Key Cryptography. It will be interesting to see the same kind of technology be used to prove whether someone has been in a video or not.

🍔Impossible Foods’ meatless burgers have made it a $2 billion company

Impossible Foods' recent IPO evaluated them at $2 billion. It's clear that vegan meat replacements are the future. Farming is unsustainable. Eating meat is unsustainable. The future has to disclude meat. Whether that's a fully vegan diet (eating salad every day) or meat alternatives such as Impossible Food. In a special, I'll go into detail on the future of the human diet.

Until next time,
